Today many of us said good-bye to our dear friend and the real driver of keeping the lights on for Virginia Virtucon for the last year or so.   As Terrence Boulden is laid to rest, one thing I am very certain of he would not want any of us to rest now.  It’s GOTV… More Because he said so

NAGR lies to Virginia voters and sets up Janis in VA-12

In February I wrote about Scott Rigell’s issue with Rand Paul and his association with the organization National Association for Gun Rights.

Tea Parties, Facebook, and Astroturf in the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Race

A year later… “Get over it.” Not a CHANCE.

So it appears that many Republican members of the General Assembly that supported the Cantor/Young Guns-led slating effort at county conventions last year will be unopposed for nomination this year. More’s the pity. These are the very people who need to be held responsible… and when I say ‘held responsible’, I mean ‘defeated and sent… More A year later… “Get over it.” Not a CHANCE.

The Bull Elephant gets the conversation started: Currently Republicans hold the Virginia House of Delegates by 2 to 1. Republicans have no such hold on the Virginia Senate where they hold 21 seats and the Democrats have 19. Democrats are hopeful that they can take back control of the Senate in November.
